In common with all the sports clubs based at Jubilee Field, the tennis club has been closed for about 6 months of the year as the various national lockdowns were introduced. The good news is that we anticipate being able to reopen the courts for play from March 29th – to coincide with the start of our new 21/22 tennis season. Singles, doubles, individual and group coaching and Club Mornings will all be allowed again although we will still have to be careful about social distancing, the rule of six and use of hand sanitizer.
Our members have missed being able to enjoy playing tennis on our newly refurbished carpet courts. The introduction of our online court booking system has also proved a success, especially for those who work and/or live in the surrounding area.
Through it’s constitution, Sway Lawn Tennis Club exists to provide facilities for and generally to promote, encourage and facilitate the playing of tennis in the village of Sway and amongst the local community. The tennis club enjoys a well deserved reputation, built up over the past thirty six years, for welcoming players and visitors of all ages and abilities. The Club is affiliated to the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) and as such is subject to its policies and best practice, notably in the areas of safeguarding and health and safety.
The tennis club offers significant potential benefits to Sway residents both in terms of personal all age health and fitness and general well being.
We have an adult membership of approximately 110 and a strong junior section (3-16 years) drawn from a wide range of local primary and secondary schools. Our qualified coaching staff offer high quality coaching throughout the year in a safe, friendly environment in all aspects of the sport irrespective of age or ability levels. Often, in the case of very young children, this directly involves parents and carers. Summer camps are held throughout the summer school holidays. Other tennis related fun activities are offered at Easter and half term holidays. The full size hard court is used mainly as a “practice/training court” for older juniors and adults.
